-.SH NAME
-renpy \- a visual novel engine
-
-.SH SYNOPSIS
-.BI renpy " game_directory"
-.\" ****************************************************************
-.SH DESCRIPTION
-
-.B renpy
-(Ren'Py) is a visual novel engine \- used by hundreds of creators
-from around the world \- that helps you use words, images, and
-sounds to tell interactive stories that run on computers and mobile
-devices. These can be both visual novels and life simulation games.
-The easy to learn script language allows anyone to efficiently
-write large visual novels, while its
-.BR python (1)
-scripting is enough for complex simulation games.
-.\" ****************************************************************
-.SH RUNNING A GAME
-
-In order to run a game, provide
-.I game_directory
-as an argument to
-.BR renpy .
-Exact directory name may vary depending or a game, but usually
-this path corresponds to
-.I */game
-wildcard and contains
-.I script_version.rpy*
-file within. Game directory usually contains other
-.IR *.rpy* " and " *.rpa " files."
-
-One may use
-.BR find (1)
-tool to locate required directory within unpacked game top
-directory:
-.RS
-
-find -O3
-.I top_directory
--type f -iname "script_version.rpy*"
-
-.RE
-A directory one level above may be provided as an argument as well.
-.\" ****************************************************************
-.SH PORTABILITY
-
-All
-.B renpy
-games are written in
-.BR python (1),
-so one can run then on any platform and architecture.
-
-As you may have noticed, Ren'Py games are often distributed in
-different archives for different architectures. This happens due to
-bundling of
-.BR python (1)
-interpreter and required libraries in a game's tarball. Since you
-are using OS native
-.B renpy
-setup, you should be able to run any of these games.
-.\" ****************************************************************
-.SH GAMES CATALOGUE
-
-A large catalogue of Ren'Py powered games is available at
-.IR http://games.renpy.org/ .
-.\" ****************************************************************
-.SH TROUBLESHOOTING
-
-In some cases game may fail to run with current
-.B renpy
-version due to various errors.
-
-In such case please try to use the closest
-.B renpy
-version to one used by game developer. Most games contain
-.IR script_version.rpy " file in the " game " directory."
-This file actually contains
-.B renpy
-version used during a game build.
-You may install multiple slots of
-.B renpy
-in Gentoo and use
-.BI eselect " renpy"
-module to switch between various versions.
-
-If
-.I game
-directory contains both
-.IR *.rpyc " (or " *.rpyo ") and " *.rpy " files, delete"
-.IR *.rpyc " (or " *.rpyo ") files, they will be regenerated by"
-the interpreter.
-Another solution will be to switch between version of
-.BR python (1)
-using
-.IR eselect (1)
-tool in order to find one suitable to interpret game's
-.IR *.rpyc " files."
-
-Some games may lack general media files, e.g.
-.I click.ogg
-sound, so you should create or download one and place in the
-.I game
-directory.
-
-Also please pay attention to
-.I problems.html
-page from
-.B renpy
-html documentation, see
-.B FURTHER READING
-section.
-.\" ****************************************************************
-.SH ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
-
-.B renpy
-supports a number of environment variables to control its
-behaviour. Please refer to html docs for further details
-(see
-.B FURTHER READING
-section).
-.\" ****************************************************************
-.SH FURTHER READING
-
-.B renpy
-comes with extensive html documentation. To use it install
-.B renpy
-with
-.I USE="doc"
-and go to
-.I /usr/share/doc/renpy-*/html/doc/index.html
-
-Alternatively one may refer to online documentation:
-.IR http://www.renpy.org/doc/html/ .
-Be warned that online docs maybe different from your current active
-version, so it recommended to use shipped documentation instead.

-.SH BUGS
-
-Any bugs related to Gentoo packaging (e.g. omitted dependencies)
-please report on bugzilla:
-.IR https://bugs.gentoo.org .
